We’re at the end of the year and at the end of our Cocktail & Mocktail series. 🙁 We’ve had a blast sharing delicious libation recipes with you throughout the year to enjoy each month and on the weekends. Now that we are in December we have our final cocktail and mocktail that we think is the perfect finale. The Candy Land cocktail. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have. Cheers!
